ENG260 - Creative Writing

Teaching students how to write for publication is the primary objective of this course. Class projects will involve the students in writing short stories, query letters, and nonfictional articles. Special units will be presented in plotting, viewpoint, characterization, dialogue, transition, flashbacks, suspense, and editing and revising. Samples of student writing will be discussed and criticized in class on a voluntary basis. Students will learn how to use writing journals and market guides, lay out and type professional manuscripts, and submit their work for publishing consideration. The content of the course assumes that the students are already competent in basic writing skills.
